Tongue in cheek actually.

On 2018 Jan 02 at 02.16 to 02.17 UT I took more than a dozen photos of the Moon with a secondhand Canon SX 510. Program, 1/1000 second f/5.8 400 ISO.

It is so easy, hand held, all sharp, most almost filling the frame.

From the Sky Calendar it seems full moon was at 02.24 UT that morning.

Visually, this moon looked no bigger than other full moons.
Big moons are usually within about 1% of the size of so called supermoons.

But the public and media must have their best, super, the latest, the biggest etc.
And then on to next super duper event.

Regards,
David

Human nature doesn't change, forever seeking the latest sensation, then craving the next. The media thrive on sensationalism. The "super" Moon was rising dimly behind the old wattle tree in the park when I was observing last night. Looked a bit tired and anything but super. The Moon and I. Kind thoughts, Bob
